In 2015, The Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton (SPRC) partnered with three social housing providers, Hamilton East Kiwanis Non-Profit Homes Inc., Victoria Park Community Homes Inc. and McGivney Community Homes Inc., to explore the potential of a resident engagement initiative in Hamilton’s South Mountain neighbourhood. As a result of the partnership, the SPRC received a two year grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to create a resident engagement project that would have a benefit to the local community and broader positive impact to the individual residents in the neighbourhood.

The Hamilton Immigration Partnership Council and the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion launched a new public education campaign, #HamiltonForAll, that aims to stimulate dialogue and open minds by encouraging Hamiltonians to stand up against prejudice, exclusion and discrimination based on ethnicity, race, religion, country of origin, disability, sexual orientation or other differences.
The SPRC published this series of Hamilton For All Factsheets to improve understanding of Hamilton’s changing racialized, immigrant and linguistic communities and better support community dialogue around deconstructing misconceptions so that everyone in Hamilton feels welcome in our city.
